Jay Glazer: Bucs Have New GMJanuary 21st, 2014
Joe was beginning to feel angst over the clock continuing to click and no one filling the seat of former Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik. Well, it appears that wait is over.
Per uber NFL insider Jay Glazer (if he has ever been wrong about something, please let Joe know) of Fox Sports, the Bucs have decided to hire Jason Licht as their next general manager.
@JayGlazer: The Bucs have tabbed Jason Licht as their new General Manager. The two sides are still working out the contract. … Btw, the Bucs job Licht has been tabbed for is a “real” GM job as he has control of the draft & other personnel decisions.
That’s not an untoward request for power from any general manager. He should have control of the draft and personnel matters, with the coach having the final say with the 53-man roster.
Licht comes from the Arizona Cardinals where he served as a vice president of player personnel. He also was a right hand to Bill Belicheat for years. Not to alarm Bucs fans or anything, but the Cardinals are still searching for a quarterback to replace Kurt Warner.
